Adam jokes that my Facebook life is twice as fast as my real life. In November we took some holiday photos with Le Zu Photography and were flooded by responses from people who thought they were engagement photos. Oops. I am guilty of loving being in front of a camera, so when Layla from Le Zu Photography asked if I would do a bridal shoot with her so she could test a new location, I jumped at the opportunity. So if you’re wondering, no this isn’t my dress. Although I have bought mine, and I am obsessed with it!
Since Adam and I met in Houston, I wanted our engagement photos to capture us in some of our favorite places in the city that introduced us. We were on a tight deadline since Adam was leaving Houston soon, and we didn’t know if he’d be back before I joined him in LA. Fortunately, my friend Cam at Bertuzzi Photography had a shoot in our neighborhood and was able to squeeze us in for a last-minute session. The very talented Kelsey Vawter, you met her here, of Styled by Kelsey V (check out her Girl’s Night Out video, you might spot a familiar face) did my hair and makeup.
I had one vision for our photos: Torchy’s Tacos. They are my most favorite tacos ever and conveniently located just down the street from our apartments. I love them so much anytime Adam asked what I wanted to eat he’d have to specify “other than Torchy’s” because he knew that would be my answer. Still, we spent a lot of time in that restaurant hanging out with friends, toasting to celebratory occasions or just devouring Trashy Trailer Parks (best. taco. ever.), so I knew it had to be featured in our engagement photos.
